ASDEC certification regulations

The Historical Register of Vintage and Classic Boats and the Rules for Certification and Qualification of historic boats (vintage and classic), applicable to every kind of vessel, and therefore boats powered in any way (engine, sail or oars) and any kind of use (professional, work, pleasure or competition) is the basis for all the activities of ASDEC. This is true as regards the mere gathering of documentation as well as the issuing of certifications and Qualifications based on a precise evaluation methodology, fine-tuned through a lengthy process of continuous improvement. In particular, the Rules, based on the evaluation of different parameters regarding the craft to be certified (age, history, originality and refit, maintenance, dimensions and construction complexity, seaworthiness, aesthetics, decoration and patina), must be well known by anyone responsible for the Certification or Qualification of a vintage boat.
